I use another popular app. I find some of the guided meditations better than others. I've downloaded the breathing app. Watched the how to video. Played with the breathing app a bit, and I'm stoked to give this a whirl tomorrow. Thank-you.

The path that #RussellBrand is on is truly inspirational. Thank you so much for leading the way.

As I start my new journey, I have found your journey and struggles along the way to be extremely helpful. I'm starting my journey alone (I do know this is not the best way, but my own circumstances call for this) so I do thank you, for your down to earth talk and realism in all you talk about. From one addict to another, all the best for the future ๐Ÿ™‚

Love yoga! It’s helping me so much with recovery of not being able to walk. Amazing stuff

Top fan ๐Ÿ˜‚ I mean, you inspired me to start a podcast, so. Thank you!

Never thought I would be a top fan of Russel Brand. Very inspirational man. Keep up the good work and inspiring others. We that suffered the hell of addiction recognise the paradise that awaits us when the penny drops, and a gracious feeling that no amount of money could buy โค๏ธ

I GOTTA WATCH THIS.... I suffer with COPD and have oxygen at home ( I don't need it all the time!) Through hospital visits & finding out which kind of oxygen delivery best suits me, I've discovered that I am NOT a natural 'nose breather' (?) This means I struggle to fill my lungs fully if I use my nose... which is important in YOGA .... right??? Well, I'll mebbe find out when I watch this episode. See Russell, your podcasts help me in so many aspects of my life, not just spiritually my friend! Thank you for providing this wonderful service for me ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’œ Top Lad!

Hey #RussellBrand. Please check out niraj niak (aka renegade pharmacist) and the Soma awakening. He works with wim hof and looks to produce dmt like effects naturally in the body. His program has great effects in a very short space of time. You should definitely have him on your podcast and he said you are one of his favourite human beings. Somabreath.com

Can’t wait to check this out! Namaste๐Ÿ‘

I love your path Russell. You are gathering many beings I knew, or even met. It makes me feel the world is small and familiar and one and connected (psst: it is). Good vibes to u ๐Ÿ’ซ

I love that he pointed out the many words Russell uses and no one understands....thought it was just me :S Love te episode!

Enjoying your spiritual journey Russell x

God I adore your mind!

Loving Russell

I've been given a badge .... Google "unseen leader of the world" to find out why .... Me and John the Baptist Brand against the mafia of the mediocre .... all done with love, of course x๐Ÿ˜‰

Thank you

Can’t wait to hear this one!

I hope you are well my good friend, and hopefully i will see you soon if the right wing fascists that run this reality show for Sky, keep their promises this time. I was meant to finish this September, but they behaved like the charlatans and White supremacists they really are.xx

Love your philosophy

Thank you!!!

Hey Russell please consider a food telly programme where you select homeless people to cook meals under the supervision of top chefs. Let's bring an awareness around the difference between those who have and those who don't. It won't be easy but I feel like you could do it.

Russell I truly appreciate all you share... but you speak too quickly even for an Irish girl ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

We get so caught up in the distractions all around us and essentially lose our true essence of who we are but healing is possible to truly find out most authentic selves. Your thoughts on the state of humanity and consciousness are so relatable! Keep up the great work ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Love this. Be proud to be different and don't conform to this bullshit way of what everyone "expects" you to be

I ♥๏ธ this! Thank you ๐Ÿ™ I truly enjoy hearing you speak and your perspectives!

I stopped voting after the election in 2008. The only meaningful change we can make is in our own hearts and our own lives.

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

We need to bring grace back into our consciousness, through grace we have love, through grace we heal.

ROCKSOLID clarity to count on! Thanks for speaking the truth! Together we rise and apart we are frail and fail methodically!

are we crazy..or are we startin to be authentic..this wont look like Leadership..it won't look like Politics..what this is,is not Recovery but Rediscovery of our individual bloody amazing authentic selves..when we allow who we are to shine through...we are not only effective..but our own individual light of truth..ta x

yes more awareness to allow our consciousness to raise and to come from a place of love ๐Ÿงš‍โ™€๏ธ

Learning how to practice this and many others; self compassion and control: mindfulness, my emotional intelligence, flow and focus. Been listening to Daniel Coleman and Wayne Dyer on Ted lectures. I feel as though I want to make the whole world understand. I feel your passion Russel. Sooo feel it. Thank you for having the courage to do what you do and be who you are. Xxxxxx๐Ÿ˜˜

Matrix of Compassion? Have you checked out the Charter for Compassion movement? en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charter_for_Compassion It is a matrix. Then check out the latest Paul Stamets film with Louie (?) about mushrooms and that matrix. Life changing!

Russell is such an inspiration.

Thank uou for expanding upon this. Explains allot of why my job as a nurse does not feel like a distraction.

I thank you to the stars and beyond for opening ypur mind and sharing every thing you do. I'm with you all the way. You are Brilliant and beyond. Keep goin

You were given a gift and enjoy talking and I'm glad. ๐Ÿ˜€ Continue

100% with you - this was my summer- wake up world - compassion and deep Empathy is the only way through this - let’s get there !

Thank you Russell thank you

Love you but your so bipolar and heaps of money would love to just do what you do but can’t afford but respect you x

I would like to tell my story so that others will see hope. Would you be the one to give me that platform?

Stop.... just stopit ! Your that type of guy that would visit the pamuda triangle, you need to stop talking and spirituality find yourself before I spirituality find you

So agree, it would seem you spent 1/2 your life learning to be an ‘adult’ then you wake up and realise you now need to spend the 2nd half of your life unlearning, and getting back to who you were before the world tarnished you, it’s a team effort and we are all in this together โค๏ธ

Best message you have given so far Russell. Thank you so much. โค

Really great stuff. Needed this today. I’ve been dealing with lots of pain - for many years - I sure hope I get to the butterfly stage soon!!! I think I’ve been dissolved enough! ๐Ÿ˜‚

A great work ๐Ÿ’ซ

Such a grounded way of explaining complex ideas, love your work Rusty !!

Thank you ๐Ÿ™Œโคโคโคโค๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™‚

Great analogy, Your metamorphosis has been so helpful in my own and no doubt many others. Thanks for sharing.

We are meant to go through times of hardship as well as times of pain and suffering so when we reach our final destination we will taste the sweetness of the ultimate reward paradise

Such a delivery! Love you're pledian nature at work.

Truly have to die and surrender to a nothing identity before being reborn to fly as a beautiful butterfly ๐Ÿฆ‹

We loved your talk, I’m a RB convert now. It was lovely when you pointed out your family to us all ๐Ÿ™

Beautifully said ๐Ÿ‘ And as for me, I can never get enough of analogies and metaphors ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿงฉ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿงฉ

You really get it my friend. People today see this world as if in a dream due to the conditioned conceptual mind.

Wow.. exactly what I am going through.. metamorphosis...pain suffering doubt... hopefully it ends up all well...

You are enlightened Russell, love your talks

The metamorphosis ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ its intense. Found myself bursting to speak out the simple truth. And little damns have burst and a need for a complete release. The doubt and fear ... and the brittleness that is felt has been and is frightening. Thank god for the spiritual awareness .. the support is felt and it reassures my heart โค๏ธ to listen and to know I am not alone. And grateful..so love the humour and lightness. ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฆ‹๐ŸŒนxx

What an inspiration speaker....a man who had a hard upbringing....an addict....reaching out for help and turning his life around through the Big Book....spirituality and meditation...letting go of all the things that does not serve him for his higher good. Could listen to him all day. He's spreading the message...even if he talks too much and uses his status to spread the word....who cares...because at the end of the day.. he's doing these talks for the people that need to hear how he recovered....and to sit through the storm..until the sun shines again....I totally get this guy...and I think his work is incredible....good on you Russell xxxx

and if anyone helps the butterfly get out of the cocoon, it mightn't survive as its wings are strengthened by pushing through, it needs to do that part on its own to develop and build strength to use their wings & fly, nice speech๐Ÿฆ‹

I think I’m in the gooey mess part. ๐Ÿคฃ

I love everything about your core energies. Revitalizing-re-energizing-validating the dynamics in life - ur helping so many people, how does a healer like myself get on your team?

Wow....my life in a nutshell... literally everything bad one could have happened to them...happened to me in 2 months...but things are improving...mantras and repairs...fix one's self. Rest instead of giving up. Change it.

Please visit Dublin again Russell

I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me. Because His perfect love will never quit on me.

Still on that path to my truer self! ♥๏ธ

Love you Russell Brand but can you be funny again sometimes. I transform myself when Im laughing at your comedy! Bring back Ponderland please. The world needs your humour as well. You can do both, be funny and spiritual, it's called balance, you know that.<3

My friend and GREAT TEACHER and STRANGE PROPHET Wim Hof is teaching an amazing course on the incredible enlightenment platform @OneCommune - here is a link to get it for FREE www.onecommune.com/a/17733/nQVo7DpF ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Yey thanks for sharing Russell Brand! Commune offers so many great courses and I’ve been a member from the very beginning, learning so much from so many different and inspiring people. Was super happy to see Wim getting involved and excited/slightly scared for learning from him! ๐ŸคฃโœŒ๐Ÿผ

Love Wim! Haven’t taken the plunge yet though. Bbbbrrrrr ๐Ÿ˜ฌ ...BUT, just took the figurative plunge and signed up for the free course! Thanks for the push!

This guy is fantastic !!! Cannot wait to start this course ๐Ÿ˜€

Fantastic opportunity not to be missed. Extraordinary man.

This made me smile and giggle. The choreography came across like parody; there's a subtle genius at work..... : infectious & fascinating are individuals who achieve outstanding results with obscure methods and whose self belief is so selflessly authentic it becomes infectious. In summary, I think he's nuts, but I like him and a brief dabble forward slash practice of Wim's techniques has been positive to date. If it works it works. Cheers RB, you strange teacher and great prophet.

This guy is amazing. Give the Wim Hoff Method a go, you won’t believe it until you’ve tried it. Changes things ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿง˜‍โ™€๏ธ

I would be in fits of laughter if i met this chap

Great use of your platform. ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ’›

My husband and I were committed to this practice until he kept passing out during the breathing and one day looked like he had a seizure. Scariest moment of my life. Please do not do any of this alone and be aware of the risks. Yes, he may have been breathing too intensely but without an experienced practitioner it’s hard to know if you’re doing it correctly. If you’re going to do it, always do it with a partner in case anything goes wrong.

I love this man. It makes so much sense.

So many ways to master the emotions.. dynamic meditation every day for 6 weeks will do it and no ice injured in the process

Not interested in being superman. I'll just try not to mind the normal ups and downs of life by meditating regularly but putting my body through extremes of temperature just smacks of my addictive tendencies!

Am freezing thinking about it but the "cold shower" method is supposedly a very worth while idea! It gives u the ability to understand you are more than your feelings and if you can handle that you can handle anything else life throws at you

Great accent.it makes everything so exotic, foreign, mystical and deep Hof.

Listen sweetheart I’m all for the mind and soul vibe but that’s extreme cold water .. no! ๐Ÿคฃ

Thank you for reminding me of the benefit of cold showers and physical exercises in natural environments <3

I'm signed up! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Interaction defines physicality.. Conscious is the universal capacity to interact with itself.. In my opinion..

I did the fundamentals course and did the ice bath...Signed up for this.

Sounds interesting. High short line clearly also part of the endurance training.

I've used the breathing method. it's great. Not that it's made for this but let me hold my breath for 5 mins without a stretch too.

Thanks for the heads up, Russel ๐Ÿ‘

This ice-bath I am soaking in is so relaxing, I've just pissed in it.

The Aikido founder Morihai Ueshiba used to do this. Its called Mysogi in Budo. He would go to the mountain lakes and sit in the ice cold water to increase his Ki. Its a well explored method, not a new thing. But with all these things they need constantly re-discovering not just teaching and Wim is doing that and spreading the techniques with is great.

It is fact though its very true what he saids .. got to love the cold shower ๐Ÿ˜ƒโค

A clip from the upcoming Under The Skin podcast with Deepak Chopra!
In this clip Deepak is explaining some of results from research done on people who have a spiritual program or practice! You can listen to the entire conversation this Sat 5th Oct only on Luminary
... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Wow truth was flowing from Deepak Russell was tuned and deeply listening Deepak outlined self actualization and so much more in that short clip Thank you Russell for bringing this to us Russell- do you enjoy the teachings of Joseph Campbell?

I love his sentiment and particularly the point about memory. Having memory control your thoughts is very dangerous and frought with danger if you have experienced trauma in your past. That’s why psychologists work on memory for many patients. But scientific proof of spirituality? That’s a stretch Russell - how can spirituality be proven? It’s impossible.

This is really good. However I have had some very difficult experiences starting to increase my meditation and mbsr. I have had trauma in my past. I have done some research and I think there is such a lack of warning of the possible adverse reactions people can have when they start doing this process. There is a guy called David Trevallan who wrote a book called trauma informed Mindfulness that talks a out this. I think people need to know about this cos its not all peace and light for lots of people Thought you would find it interesting. He is pro this stuff too just helps people navigate it.

Thank you for sharing this sums it up as far as mindfulness and treatment for PTSD

This all rings true with me, not because of who is saying it (Deepak/Russell), not because of what it's being claimed to be (proof/scientific evidence) but because of my own experience in those precious occasions when I felt I was aligned with my essence. So in the absence of adequate scientific tools to observe, measure or understand the effects of 'spirituality', my lived experience is enough for me. ๐Ÿ’ž

This is really interesting and very deep aspect about balanced lifestyle. I can see some parallel definitions in “The power of now” , working with your ego and also about trapped in your emotions. Bringing out the good in people with pure love for humanity ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽถ United as one โ˜๏ธ

Very insightful, it’s a shame people to actually feel in tack with the emotions

If I’m not spiritual or god loving, does that mean I can’t feel compassion, emotions when I hear music or I watch someone help a cute puppy out of the gutter shouldn’t I become tearful. Faith or religion don’t own morality that’s down to us individuals. I don’t believe there’s anything or anyone watching over us to determine weather we’re good people or not, it’s down to us. Someone please tell me what spirituality is cos it sounds like religion to me and I think it’s already caused enough war and death of innocent people than anything else life has thrown at us.

Universe..One Song..If we are all fragments of the Divine..we are all LOVE..x

Actually figured this out 45 years ago, but couldn't explain it. Well done, and thank you.

Loved part one- looking forward to tomorrow’s part. Cheers Russ x

I have followed you for many years. I really like how are you have turned your life into helping others while looking into your own introspection. Your posts are helping me as well. I have a lot of anxiety issues after losing a son, a home and a marriage. Meanwhile I work part time and I’m pursuing my art and writing career and trying to reinvent myself. Your posts give me a lot of tools to Realize my goals and make them happen. Keep posting because you’re helping a lot of people. Thank you Russell.๏ฟผ๏ฟผ๏ฟผ

Not scientific evidence. Anecdotal experience is not demonstrable proof of anything. Meditation is valuable for many people but how can the unenlightened know who is truly enlightened?

Spirituality by it's very nature is incompatible with the scientific method. But you do you if it makes you happy.

Just find a lama and be with him then you don't have to think about it happening. The experience it just becomes, it becomes, that's it. You don't have to be so light bodied or wear dark rimmed glasses to get spiritual

Ah, yes. The diamond-encrusted guru with his "scientific proof."

Oh give me a break Russel. You talking to a guy for 2 minutes is NOT scientific proof. Try to remember what counts as "proof" from back when you were a proper journalist.

Please put your podcasts back on Spotify or make Luminary available in Germany - I feel left out ):

I really liked ‘I can use memories but don’t allow memories to use me’! ๐Ÿค—

I find it astonishing that anybody gives this guy air-time. ๐Ÿ™„

So no scientific proof at all then, all ethereal, and subjective happenings. Be as "spiritual" as you think you are but scientifically speaking this is not something any legitimate scientist will get behind

I agree with all that .. however the scientific proof part? Nope, it’s all perception of value systems and and positive ripple change

I feel like I'm following into the path but I have something I have a hard timeletting go. I know it's right but it's unknown

He’s spot on comrades I’ve been doing this awakening for over a year now it’s a fact and physics can prove that to

Really Russell! This guy is plutonium grade quack. He doesn't understand science at all. There are far better people to have on your shows who are scientists and have a sense of wonder /humanity.

Mr Brand, you make so much sense. So often. On so many issues. Thank you for imparting your wisdom. ๐ŸŒผ

Thank you Mr. Brand for your continued inspiration! These posts truly help give me a mental boost!

‘No one benefits from being judged’ Love that ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป so true.

Correct me if I'm wrong but over the years, gratitude has held me back somewhat.

Really good advice we all need to hear ๐Ÿ˜‰โค

Thanks for sharing Russell. I’m married 38 years and you’re right. I particularly like the concept of service and gratitude. So many times people can be stuck on the external. Like those who pick at you about what shirt you are wearing. Good grief! I don’t care what shirt you wear or how your hair looks - it’s the words and thoughts and they ring true. It takes a lot of guts to do what you do. Know that it is appreciated !!!

love ๐Ÿ’• your posts Russell was quite lost before but u make total sense keep following your path brother and inspiring xxx

Perfectly said. I absolutely agree. Married 20 years strong and we follow this exact premise.

My Wife and i rarely argue (it's fortunate we are mostly on the same page), but i would agree with the top 5 arguement topics, some more than others. But one thing i always do is never let an arguement get to the next day. If it's not resolved before bedtime, then i'll give in, apologise whatever i need to do to get that reaolution process started. I think it's bad for your mental health to lay there all night stewing on your thoughts and building a negative barrier toward your spouse. My Wife won't always follow this same process but then it doesn't need both of us to yield, it only needs one. And lets be honest, i'm normally the one at fault๐Ÿ˜‚

After 43 years of marriage, I can tell you the REAL secret....understand and accept that love changes. That’s why people want out. “It’s not what it used to be.” It’s not supposed to be! Love evolves for the task at hand. Falling in love. Raising kids. Being a caregiver. A different love for each as you experience life’s changes. At the end of the day, relationships are simply people who signed up to “witness” each other’s lives. And stop thinking you’d be happy with someone else. Happiness is an inside job and has nothing to do with your significant other. They will never make you completely happy just as it’s impossible for you to make them completely happy! “Love is sufficient unto love.” -Khalil Gibran-

I project, completely! In so many things I am grateful, but I am so angry. Thank you for your insight. Spot on.

I've been in 3 separate relationships since I was 16. Recently I've left the last one and have stopped striving for family. It's better for me to be alone with my children and if I'm lucky enough to meet anyone to keep them at a safe distance outside my family circle

Well done Russell, I was married for 47-years. I was the one who gave in because fighting was so unpleasant for me. However my husband did try and we didn't stay mad for more than an hour. Also realizing the grass isn't greener with someone else in marriage is what helped to keep us together. Important not to go to sleep angry at each other also helped. Remembering why I fell in love with my mate is a great suggestion. He did make me laugh every day so keeping it light is so important. โค Thank you Russell

I agree with all of your thoughts, good advice as usual. But it takes both sides to work on these principles to make it a successful marriage/partnership, be open to discussion about how to improve relationships, be open to listen to outside advise, spend time on things you both like to do, be present, invest time and effort with each other’s and with extended family and friends - that is all so important.

Perfect post. My parents were married for 67 years, 6 months and two weeks. Their love, compassion, acceptance and forgiveness was words fail me. Neither of them ever shouted

You are a gem Russell...I always manage to tune into you when I have wandered or forgotten and whatever the subject it is always what is needed๐Ÿ™Today your meditation with Deepak has been divine

Outstanding, Deepak has been around for a long time. A Medical Doctor, a Mentor, he introduced into the Medical Field that there are many ways to heal, some going back thousands of years. He introduced me to the work of RUMI..........you are in the presence of a great man with Deepak. Russell enjoy every moment with him.

I LOVED part 1 of the Deepak Chopra interview it's my favourite episode yet..!!! Big call, given the greatness of Brene Brown, but everything that Deepak shared expanded my mind and heart in the most profound ways - amazing ♥๏ธ♥๏ธ♥๏ธ

Your such a cool, kind and caring human being of others. We appreciate your insight and sharing it with all of us. Thank you.

I enjoy your posts and I personally like your experience expressed we can learn from our surroundings... stress of normality . The real impact on who we are individually... forevermore changing always ..

looks wonderful, we miss listening here in denmark:-)

If the vibes here were water-tight... perhaps they wouldn't have mistakenly transcribed "The source of CONTEMPTment" @ 0:24, lolololol. Raw consciousness gives us this subtle, ironic grain of salt! Thanks, Infinity. <3

You should really come visit me at Ibogahealingexperience.com. Fear and guilt don’t exist. Come take a journey with Iboga and rid yourself of anxiety. Ayahuasca won’t help with that but Iboga will.

I would love to sign Up for Luminary... but i live in Sweden and i can’t!!! How can i get on?! Would you maybe consider coming on to Pindify aswell?

Miss your stuff being available to the masses without yet another subscription.

Russell Brand I am so grateful for your videos

Two amazing people

Love you Russell..I don't watch your videos any more though you are often in my heart

Hi Russel! I’d love to follow you on Luminary... but it is not available in Sweden... have you considered joining Pindify?

Awesome ๐Ÿ˜Ž

The source of fulfillment sounds like dopamine released during meditative experiences

Cheers!

Be happy & laugh more:

I want to like deepak, but he is an aggressive capitalist masking as a wise guru. He says some great stuff. But hes too Tony Robbins esq for me ๐Ÿ™

Any chance being able to listen to the podcasts in Ireland?

I served Deepak Chopra lunch once and he was nicely groomed and smelled really good.

The diamond encrusted guru returns.

I am grateful for my wife. I couldn’t do any of this without you. I’m grateful for my sons, Jack and Adam. You are each better versions of me. No. You are each perfect versions of yourselves. I am grateful for my mother and father. You are the standard to which I aspire.

Im greatful for your talk here in this video Russell i love that you are manifesting good vibrations. I have an app i use daily called gratitude 365 and its been a blessing for me as well as reading self help books on personal mastery and they to have been a great help. Now i just got to get though this patch of loneliness and ill be much better.. peace & love to you all namaste ๐Ÿ•‰๐Ÿ™โ˜˜๐Ÿ’š

I'm grateful for so much right now. For my boyfriend who has held my hand through my bad and dark times of pain, and lifted me up to shine as hard as I can! For my closest friends, who are amazing and beautiful inside and out. For my health, which is returning as my mind heals. For my creativity, to be able to express myself in amazing ways. For my dog, who loves me every day so hard. For my children, who I am so proud of! They're achieving wondrous things and are bright stars if human beings! I'm also thankful for the help @russellbrand podcasts have given me, in being able to understand other people's ideologies, and their ways of expressing how and who they are. So many beautiful souls out there, it expands my horizons to hear their stories and learn through their tales and ideologies, which expands our own internal experiences, if we let it.

Grateful for being alive in such a beautiful environment with my dear friend next door, my beautiful daughter and her lovely boyfriend who also live with me in harmony

I am grateful that my husband is alive. That each day is a chance to be a better version of me and I am grateful for the storm and the gifts I find within.

I am grateful for having a job with a lot of personal growth I'm getting from it. I'm grateful for meditation as the solution in some way. And I'm grateful for my creativity and insight.

I am grateful for 1. Helpful work colleagues 2. I have a good relationship with my sister now (it’s used to be a bit fraught) 3. I have good friends in my life

I am grateful for the things I have today - that really matter and also the fact that I recognize that, instead of always wanting the things I thought would make me happy. xx

1. Sat on a comfy sofa in the warmth 2. Feel satisfied by cooking and eating a nice meal with my family 3. Enjoying watching master chef on tv.. This really works..need to keep a gratitude journal. Thx Russell

My family is priceless. I have capacity to invest in others. I have emotion to feel a whole range of feelings!

I’m grateful that every day at lunch I get to walk to the beach, a walking meditation if you will. I’m grateful for the sign I got from the Universe today reminding me to stay present. I’m grateful that I stumbled upon your podcast ๐Ÿ™.

I am grateful for: - my children, they give me the greatest joy watching them grow into who they are destined to become - my home, it houses me, gives me a roof over my head & a place where I belong - my husband as we have learnt how to do this ‘thing’ through communication & respect & have learnt it’s hard work but worth it

I am grateful for where I live, how I live and all I have. It’s not “much” compared to some but I truely am grateful.

I pray daily twice sometimes more am always grateful and thank those who help me, I am thankful for my children, health, etc I do need to work more on my meditation and helping others more...got to work my programme properly, been lapsed the last two years and have been consumed by self pity, blaming others and self guilt for falling backwards and being co dependent...its not working for me I am working my programme once again starting now โค

I’m currently in hospital having investigations for cancer, my 12 step programme has made this such a different empowering experience. Daily gratitude lists raise my spirits and keep me connected. Gratitude enables me to be a patient patient and stay happy. I may be facing a big moment, but just for today I feel ok, I am connected to my higher power and my likeminded friends. Without my gratitude list I am sure I would start the miserable slide into self pity! Namaste ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ ๐ŸŒ€๐Ÿ•‰

I'm grateful that this video found its way into my day. Endless gratitude for my 88 year old parents. I'm grateful for being in a stronger mental and emotional state than I used to be. I look forward to being able to say I'm grateful to have found a new job. ๐Ÿ™

I am grateful for walks with my dog in the beautiful outdoors. I am grateful that my children trust in me to share their deepest thoughts and challenges, I am grateful for my friends old and new that I can be comfortable being myself with.

1/ I thank the lord for giving me the strength/getting me through the last 20 years of my life 2/ for my 18year old twin daughters who are a joy after such struggles 3/ my mother and father for the solid foundation they gave me. Show the love people ๐Ÿฅฐ

I have much to be grateful for. I have a loving family, a good husband and two fantastic kids. We are a team. I have a good job, with a very supportive, dynamic team of professionals whom I value and respect. I have a beautiful home and loving, sweet pets. I have my health and wellness and a wonderful future. After typing that I read it and went: “Why are you in a funk? Get on with it Sister.” Love you Russell. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ‘

1. Grateful that God is by my side no matter what I'm facing. 2. For my family and friends who love me just as I am. 3. And for finding a wonderful man to spend my life with, who loves me and my kids and would do anything for us.

I don’t write a list but I say out loud 3 things every morning. Todays were:- the sunshine โ˜€๏ธ, autumn ๐Ÿ‚, having the best mental health day I’ve had in months โค๏ธ

How I can make other people smile, how imaginative and creative I can be, and how my two cats love me ๐Ÿ–ค

1)Being self sufficient 2) truly knowing what love is and being able to love myself 3) freedom of choice

I give thanks DAY & NITE for all that I have๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ. For the Good of course but also for the bad things that teach me lesson and help me become a better human ๐ŸคฉI’m a positive person and try to be a positive influence on others all the time๐Ÿ’•

somewhere to sleep,the sparrows in the hedge outside my window..and this moment to think of grateful things..ty x

I just listened to you and Richard Ayoade have an in-depth beautiful conversation on your podcast. It was sooo kind and so polite and English.

Gary and Grant will be all: "Go Faster! Hustle harder!" And Russ will be all: "Slow down! Heal your soul!"

This would be bloody outstanding!!!! Come to NZ Russell!!!!!!!!

pretty boy russell brand.. he rocks AMAZING INFO ALWAYS A DELIGHT

Hey Russell, we will be in Edinburgh from the 14/12 till the 11/1/2020. Travelling from Australia. Do you have any shows planned around those dates? Love to see you live โค๏ธ

Grant and Russel are opposite audiences.

So who thought putting a staunch anti Capitalist in the same event as 2 investment & sales guys would be a good idea?? It'll either undermine what Gary and Grant want to say or make Russell look and sound disingenuous. Well done

I ๐Ÿ’™ Love that!

My two faves ๐Ÿ˜Russel and Gary oh my lifeeeee xxxxx

Aww Russell...this is a BAD choice! You deserve to be in better company than these two schmucks! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝ‍โ™€๏ธ

Russell...they need to update your photo!

Oh dear.....

Amazing!

It wouldnt matter who Russell Brand is surrounded by, he will adjust. I just love him.

Have a good week Russell :-)!

I love reading all of the nasty comments towards Russell ๐Ÿ™‚ So much jealousy around - let's face it, Russell has everything these idiots don't have IE. Good looks, intelligence, empathy, money and sex appeal by the bucket load ๐Ÿ˜€

Just want to see Russell by himself tbh! In London please. And not on a Jewish holiday Russell. !!!!!

Love your work Russell Brand.

He's so handsome ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ

Russell Brand is fantastic

Strange to see Russell at one of these events. I can only guess that being cut out of movies/TV for his political views is starting to mean he has to take gigs like this to provide for his family?

Thanks for last night ๐Ÿ–ค You really CRACKED it.

More power to you!!โฃ๏ธ

I had to go online to remind myself just how much of a charlatan this guy is. Really Russell you can do much better than this. He is the master of what scientists call WooWoo

He’s a complete charlatan and shouldn’t be allowed to charge poor, gullible and vulnerable people for such utterly ridiculous, pathetic, risible and pseudoscientific woolly thinking nonsense. He’s been ousted many times but keeps rearing his ugly head like an unexpected tax bill on Christmas Day.

Love it! Cannot wait. I love Deepaks work and I’m getting to understand it more and more! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ

Two of my Favorite Souls๐Ÿ–คโšช๏ธโšช๏ธ๐Ÿ–ค

He helped me in so many ways from reading a good bit of his books ..Huge Fan who actually got too meet him in Savannah GA at one of his lectures that my late Uncle Erwin was a local Magazine's Photographer and got my family & I tickets and a handshake....Thanks DEEPak for Ur hard work and that Goes for U also, Russell Brand..Good seeing U On A Great show, Ballers ๐Ÿ™‚

Loved loved the last episode one of those i will listen twice or more or more... sooo good. Yes. Thanks you two !!! Much love from Hawaii

..... would love to meet you both!! Would be a delight to listen to you 2!!! ๐Ÿ’—

Awesome! Looking forward to it

Nice. Looking forward to this one

looking very much forward ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

It is a little more than that tho man. Certain processing dependent on the goal(s) and objective(s) desired. But yes..the things about accessing the information as well as what yall are speaking of beyond this current construct is possible.

I want YOU Russel Brand as a speaker for the Soar High workshop 2020 in Brisbane

What a combo! Love to you both! โค๏ธ

love you guys, freeing humanity, one at the time xoxo

Love this! My 2 favorite people together!โฃ๏ธ

Hey there, just wanted to say thanks again for last weekend at High Watch. Got so much out of everything you had to say. Just found your stuff online and I’m looking forward to hearing more about your take on recovery and life in general โ˜ฎ๏ธ

Hi Russel! I would love to sign Up for Luminary... but i live in Sweden, and it seems as though i can’t... how can i continue to listen to ”under the skin” ... ever considered Pindify?

Just learning to meditate... live your videos

Its so simple. I am that,i am.! Go with the flow. Be in the now. Manifest that you have what you chose in the now dont think i want as thats what you will get .still wanting. Say it is coming or i have. Grace. Jesus = yes us. Be grateful for what you ask as if you have it.. it works.

My Hubby would love this Hoodie Russell is wearing ..

Perfect combination โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Why is everything made out to be so complicated when simple breathing and bringing your attention into the body can do the same boom your own self lol ๐Ÿ’Ÿโœจ

We have only one problem to solve, the problem of thought. We are "stuck" inside of it.

Oh no... Deepak is such a nonsense spouting pseudo intellectual. Sam Harris exposed him brilliantly. Why would Russell talk to this woo-merchant?

Two frauds hanging out together telling themselves “We are sooo cool”.

Comment on Facebook

Godddddd I dig this man! If you're ever in the Hamptons, hit me up! I would love to experience your energy up close and personal! Your teaching resonates with me! I teach this to my girls... I work at an intensive outpatient facility for ladies with substance use disorder and most of them complex trauma. My girls have been so badly abused in any and every way you can imagine. I often show them your videos... coming from you, the message is more succinct. Thank you on behalf of my girls and myself... I am no stranger either! You rock Mr. Fabulous! And I wouldn't say no to you coming and saying hi to my clients! ๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ˜

Ironically, I woke up and looked at my phone and your excellent video was the first thing I saw this morning!

Definitely something I want to work on. I'm probably not as attached to my phone as most of the people I know but definitely room for improvement...

Your videos are helping me so much I live one day at a time and started to meditate I am trying new things in my life and loving my life xxx

My son whom is nearly 11 has been waving to these lovely elderly bunch that sit in front of this bay window every morning for the last 6 years . Every day on our way to school he waves and smiles at them and they rush to the window , stand up smile and wave back . My son said to me last week , they have watched me grow and I have watched them grow but between us we smile and wave only for a few seconds but it makes me so happy Mum x We’ve never spoken to them or met them but it’s weird our morning routine has this beautiful ritual in it and it’s just love . That’s what life is all about surely? So much better than looking at a phone x

Russell if we are not looking at our phones, we wouldn't be listening to you promoting your book. I agree though, far too much time wasted on mobile's. I leave my mobile at home now when i go out.

Mr. R :: I was in rehab for 52 days without a phone. Without it, I was able to reflect & ponder the predicament I was in. Having disappointed all of those I loved with my relapse, I managed to attend 2 meetings a day, interact with my housemates, enjoy a direct dialogue with my higher power & achieve general sense of well-being. There is too much emphasis on phone usage :: now. my phone will serve me well to communicate with my sponsor and do my steps. Without it that may not be possible. Thank you for your sound advice. Love a fellow substance abuser.

I love you! You hit it right on the money! I listen to your podcast! I love the man you have become. You are an inspiration to addicts everywhere especially those in recovery. And I thank you for being the kind gentle soul you are.

Appreciate your candor. I’m almost 3 years sober and I love your style of delivery and the message itself, really important to hear. Glad I follow you.

I could listen to you all day, you speak so much sense & in such a calm receptive manner ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘

I have the most intimate relationship with my phone. It goes everywhere with me. I consult it for answers and play with it and enjoy our favorite blues rock. We depend on each other to be able to watch your videos, go shopping, bank and share a joke or two.

This is brilliant. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸปIve taken some much from your videos. I couldn’t agree more and just said a similar thing. I suggested meditation gratitude and journal then in a better mindset to approach social media!

Great content - I feel I have mastered all other aspects of my life to a great level - I now utilise my phone in the morning yes - read news for the day and check on a few friends . I will utilise later today if I feel like listening to a podcast . I could cut back a little but this outlet has helped me as I was extremely anti social and it gave me access to my little world where I live . I now attend groups and have active interests in outside events . So..in general utilising your phone in the correct manner is what it is all about - I leave it behind and miss a perfect photo shoot - for my collections of world wonders within my society also . With flowers etc I can go back and I have one that I will do today or tomorrow . Breathtaking...pretty stuff - sharing with others who do not get out everyday for their wonder walk . This is necessary what you have done here - however another one with a different slant would be great also - what utilisation happens on your phone ?

I get more validation fromspiritual groups with like minds and profound thinking and big hearts than I do in my own household where I am rejected, ignored, invisible, used, unappreciated etc etc and I am for now stuck in this situation so my virtual friends are important to me for connection and validation and stimulation. They can't replace reallife, but they can be a life support in dark times. It's not the phones, it's what is in them. Russell you are manifesting real support groups Borne out of these virtual groups. Fantastic ๐Ÿ’š

Absolutely brilliant and well, I limit myself on Facebook for 2 hours, even though it does help my self esteem and motivation and I have become more active because of having my iPhone it’s completely changed my life

I definitely was on it for 2 minutes 19 seconds. because you're amazing.

I use my phone to spread kindness and support friends and strangers alike. I think that if you disregard the negativity with social forums like Facebook and look to them as channels to communicate to help others then your time online can be well spent. That said, it can be easy to waste time online so setting some parameters around time invested is important.

I agree but I'm connected to many dog groups and offer comfort to strangers dealing with the dilemma of when to euthanise their best friends. It's strangers yes but I'm not seeking validation but using my experience to help others through a hard time. Social media isn't always about harvesting likes.

Honestly none .I don't have a phone well I do but hubby stole it lol. They are amazing of course and life savers. It's Just I would rather be doing something else such as spending time with our Grandchildren. Sewing, cooking and doing the things I love. Grew up with out one xx

The ♥๏ธ of my life lives on another continent. Our phones are the only way to stay connected at the moment and via this medium we’ve shared our most deeply meaningful conversations, so thanks for the advice but for now I will remain happily attached ๐Ÿ˜โœจโœจโœจ๐Ÿ˜

Im and on my own mostly so my phone is company . I wake up and lay there staring at the walls otherwise . I use it to study , read the boring news and keep in contact with others like me . But you made a very valid point . I am kind im a carer support worker and my work rota is on my phone so it is a nessersary part of my day ๐Ÿ˜Š

I don’t check my phone right away. But I’m on it a little too much as of late. It’s because I play Pokémon go. Thank for this message it’s giving me food for thought

I spend too long on my phone.. Far too long.... It's like an addiction.... I want to reduce my phone use but I'm also very fearful of not being accessible to certain friends who I have pledged my availability to. What if they need me and my phone is in another room? I have books and books on all manner of things yet I fail to read very much because I am attached to my phone. Now and then I will go out and leave my phone at home and I'm ashamed to admit that I can't wait to get back home to check that phone.... Is it my physical surroundings that are wrong.? Is it this that makes me constantly check my phone? I don't check it for popularity or insecurity reasons, I check it in case I have let someone down by not responding to a message etc....

I check my phone every morning cos my kids and grandkids live miles away and I check they are ok...secondly I need to know where I'm to be based to work that day..so embrace the phone because when I was a kid I had a phone box round the corner..today I can video call my kids 100's of miles away.

Well said Russell, our phones have become almost like another limb on our bodies. They are used for all kinds of things now not just phone calls. There is music, entertainment, the Internet, breaking news and so much more. Very few people get my telephone number because I don't want to be interrupted. My home is a place of peace and tranquility where I recharge. For me balancing my life seems to make me happier. Taking time out for cooking, writing, reading, playing with my animals and grandchildren helps to give me that balance. However younger people can be enslaved to their phones which creates anxiety and depression. Everything in moderation is a good way to keep balance in our lives. โค

Comment on Facebook

the research if very interesting, most people do very poorly when they try and determine what happiness they can find in the long term, it's as if their imagination ends up becoming their worst enemy. it's more likely that it is more important to be as conscious and aware as one can of what one is doing and why , happiness is something that is a secondary situation when the desired effects take place.

It takes courage to be happy because happiness is fragile and can be snatched away in a second, a phone call, accident or diagnosis. Misery on the other hand is yours to keep for as long as you want.

I am happy Iv not got much But I am grateful and happy as I have family and friends The only thing I ask for is to see my grand daughters are ok and my mums operation makes her better

Russell and fans, check this out -- It truly comes from within, not without. A few years ago I got into a minor car accident. I called my husband, he said, "You're joking me, you sound too happy. Did you really get into a car accident?" I said, "Yes!" My happiness was within me, not about the car. <3 I went on about my day like it never happened.

I love watching your videos and getting tips from you. I have you addictions book and I love it and found it very rewarding thank you for everything Russell. Stay well darling xxxx ♥๏ธxxxx

Many live without even the basic needs..in a World of Abundance..if we want people to know happiness it starts with providing for everyone, not just those who are deemed "Elites",as if they are more deserving somehow..Everyday worries,grind you down..just trying to put a meal on the table..inequality is rife..Life Expectancy is down while the rich get richer..somethings wrong when we have to watch the wealthy tell us how to be happy..Let's stop the obscenely greedy from running us and this Planet into the ground..and then maybe life will get not only easier for most but a lot happier..

Happiness is within, its with great friends, knowing you can pay your bills and have loads spare, watching your children grow healthy, living the life with no drama. But lose someone you love, lose your job, home, everything you worked hard for, then what...

i have learned out of my own experience that if you want to be happy stop following the rhythms of others and find your own.so yes you can be happy and no you don't need to be rich or whatever! it is not easy.

I like you, Brand, but you’re a false teacher. Please accept Christ in to your heart and allow the talents that The Holy Trinity have granted you be used in recognition of and in service to Jesus.

Joke: Why was Russell Brand unhappy? Answer- who cares?, we'll kill him and eat his flesh! I am Benj Amin and I will eat you, Christ puppet!

Agreed hedonism is bad for the world and happiness is not the chocolate I just ate because I’m sad. Purpose, belonging, significance, all essential to happiness. Believing you deserve happiness is another story all together. Good job Russle mate, people need to hear this

My testimonial is really what Russel is talking about is true!! Connection, service, constuctive/ time. All together create feel good outcomes...

I just want to say that I love you and what you stand for!! You really make a great impact on the world with the positives vibes you throw at us! It’s always a pleasure. ๐Ÿ˜

Every night, just before sleeping, my children and I make list of things that made us happy during the day. This is to get used to being positive, and fix those things we did wrong. A chance also to say sorry.

Russell I'm liking these little 'gem's of enlightenment' from you......keep it up.....we all need a helping hand from time to time to spur us on........

Happiness can be different for everyone....

Does Russell, look at all the comments and respond!! I know that there is many, If Russell responds to me I will keep following. Love ๐Ÿ’– ya Russell xx

The more grateful you are for what you have, and the more you ignore society and it's version of what they say should make you happy, the happier you will be!

It made me happy to watch this.

I've found the secret to happiness

I need to feel happy again.. Help

I just started you podcast today I'm enjoying it

Happiness is chopping wood for the fire....and sitting by it with the ones you love .....

Needed this today

Pleasure is not happiness. Amen.

I don't think. I just am. Happy I mean. About 95% of the time contented. 5% I can be a bit grumpy, but it never lasts/never sticks. I have become happier over the most turbulent years (the last 4) of my life, exactly as Russ explains (more eloquently than how I could). ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow..this is surrounding my affirmation for today which i posted on my biz page. I have learnt to live by gratitude and practices. Every morning i write out 10 things i am grateful for and why and before bed i hold on to my gratitude rock and feel in to one thing i am grateful for of that day. Xxx

Russell, have been following you/your life, for several years, as have always found you to be interesting & at times, quite entertaining. It pleases my heart, to see you with glowing skin & shiny, "alive" eyes!! ๐Ÿ‘Œ

3 things that made me happy today. Breakfast With my 2 kids. Tidying my garden, my 12 y o daughter going to the park with her friends, without my supervision. ( letting-go fase)

Russell! From the bottom of my heart thank you! For speaking and sharing your love and spirit with all of us at the high watch annual recovery picnic today! My heart is full and my liver never ending!

Today I choose to be happy. I've changed my prospective on how I view everything and it's changed my life. Sometimes circumstances try to force change in my mood so it's not always easy to stay happy constantly. I stay happy when I practice empathy, humility, open mindedness, and keep my ego in check. (Despite other people's shenanigans.) Doing the next right thing for the right reasons, being of service to others in need is how I live. I am a grateful recovering addict who is living today, not just merely existing.

Love this Russell! And have believed it for a long time. Wish you had cited that study! Would give me a bit more credibility when talking to others.

Russell Brand I personally think you should take your 12 step recovery book to the next level. I'm certain I can speak for many when I say your version of it is much more relatable, and your perspective concrete. I would buy a supplemental video program you put together with a video(one or more) for each chapter with interactive exercises. A compliment to it could be, a closed Facebook group just for those in your program, where people make declarations and give each other support. You could make an accountability app so people can track their progress. Actually, I could think of 101 things you could do to initiate and grow a program like that, with supplements people can turn to when they are feeling vulnerable. You are a great inspiration and because you did it, we know its possible for us too. You would be the guru of 12 steps of recovery for a new generation! Please consider it, because it's so necessary.

How interesting.. I’m going to make it a habit of writing down a gratitude list everyday! Thank you for this!

Hi Russel, i lost my Only son almost 4 yrs ago. He was 14. He died in my arms at the hospital. And now ? How? I will never.....

I love your posts. They are thought provocing and meaningful. Keep up the blessed work.

Russell, each moment spent worrying how long one's happiness will last serves only to diminish the quality of said happiness while it exists. Accept what The Universe gives you, knowing it isn't eternal but not dwelling on that piece of its reality.

I'm the happiest now in my life. Fighting cancer, paraplegic for now, stage three kidney disease and other issues. It's actually made me realize it's ok to go through this and be happy too. I also thank family and friends for the support.

It's worth it to count our blessings, share moments with loved ones and donate some time to help others๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒน

It's more about finding a purpose and then I think happiness comes after that. There's a reason they say you can be happy with a little and miserable with a lot. I'm genuinely more happy now than I've ever been in my life. I wake up every day completely juiced and fired up but then I have purpose which I think is a big part of it. I work from 6am to midnight every day, juggling a full time job with looking after my kids at the weekend and building my review site up. I am so thankful for my life and love every part of it. To answer your question originally yes. Yes you can be happy but your life needs purpose and you need a drive to do something in order to truly be happy

Thank you Russell

Awesome! I could listen to you all day! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

What happened to your snout, sweetie?

I don't do happy, I approach every thing, every day, situation, event with caution and low expectation, then if it goes wrong or badly I'm not disappointed and if it goes well its a bonus.

Great message. Cheers!

It is hard to be happy all the time. Unhappiness drives us on to improve ourselves. So unhappiness is a natural motivation towards evolution. We get short peak moments of happiness when we achieve our goals, but everything constantly changes. Real happiness is peace and contentment and we rarely experience these states. Meditation is one way to experience regular peace and contentment.

I have spinal injuries and my leg was paralyzed for two years -- after surgery I came out better, I guess, but my mobility is still limited and I cannot live like a normal able bodied person. You just learn to really appreciate the simpler things life has to offer.

Thanks for explaining Cherophobia else I might have thought it was a fear of lady pop legends in fish net tights! I feel happier when I accept that it’s okay to not feel happy all of the time.

Happy is a state of mind, a good pair of shoes and a purse makes me happy. But to be truly free and know your worth and to enjoy your freedom here on Earth it's only through Jesus Christ. For the joy of the Lord is your strength that's where I find my joy. Happy like I said it's a state of mind.

Russell your awsome love these posts !

Comment on Facebook

Too much... but last weekend most time.spent was driving and lissten to two of your luminary episodes while.gett8ng from.a to b and where i was i had so much fun creating art, meeting intrsting ppl, talking about art and making love that i not use the phone very minimal all weekend... wass till on same.charge from.l friday on sunday.... how often i have to charge your phone tells a steoy toooo

Yes, earlier this year I couldn’t use my phone for days, it was quite liberating. Now I don’t take it with me when I go out.

I went a year without it. Was amazed how easy it was. I swore to myself when I get another phone I won't go back into my old ways of being on it all the time then the second I get one BANG I'm hooked to fb, YouTube and phone games lol

I do a no laptop and no phone day once a year on my birthday for the past, I want to say, 5 years and I've found it incredible. It's given me stronger feeling of presence and self love. All I have is my senses and the reality in front of me, not the reality inside a digital screen. In addition to that, what else has helped me (as Brand recommends as well) is I meditate at least 10 minutes a day which as helped me be less reactive and less depressed.

A bit naive that guy. I work in social media, so I have to be online and on the phone all day. I'm glad for every moment/day that I don't have to. If someone calls me in my private life, I ghost. The mere ringing of a phone already makes me aggressive and I do not answer my own phone. Ever. However, people use social media for work. And no, I'm not talking marketing but communication. So no, there will be no "empty day".

I like..my interaction with technology and social media, I also like my empty day..its a regular.. CHOICE!๐Ÿ‘Œโค Remembering.. That , that is what it is!

Yes, absolutely ... I walk away without mine all the time. If we never unplug, we are going to miss this beautiful World in which we live. I would rather take a mental picture to store in my mind for future use than take 5,000 pictures ... Love all you do Russell Brand because you get it and you are helping others to "get it" as well.

I rarely look at my phone after I finish work on a Saturday and have the weekend pretty much free of my phone. I often go out and leave my phone at home.

Yes, I'll be away for 2weeks and unlikely to have Internet access, I'm quite happy about that !

I really hate being told what to do - especially by someone who reckons they've had a good idea and wants everyone to join in. Hey suddenly I'm a guru! Sorry - I'm fine with monitoring my own phone use, thanks.

I use the phone for so many things other than social media. I don't even have Twitter and barely use instagram. It's a phone! I actually use it to call doctors and others. It's a computer. It's my emergency lifeline. It's my cookbook. Why shouldn't I use it on that day?

great idea unfortunately missed the chance, since missed this video when my phone was off so now I need to keep it on 24/7

Yes. Already been practicing a little bit at a time for a couple years. I can actually think on my souls' own local area network ๐Ÿ˜ถ

Easily can do this---- I had been thinking that this would be a great trend to get young people started on--- learning to live a few days without phones or looking down, only looking outward and upward...lol What a great plan and idea!! I'm definitely in!

In theory this is wonderful. As a mum I need my phone if I'm out and about. Phones do a many wonderful things other than social media. I write notes like grocery needs and jobs to do. Hey it can make and receive phone calls, those can be important. It's even got a calculator if you wanna track ya grocery spending. Internet banking that's a handy little tool .... a phone isnt fb. It isn't Twitter or Insta. Social media is a time passer an ego inflatter or just a bit of nosey fun. But I get what's being said. I just prefer not to focus a blame on poor ol phoney for not connecting to humans.

I would... but the only friend's I have are on my phone and that is very sad

I visited the UK recently and I want it to simply absorb all of my surroundings, all the beauty in both the scenery and the people. I made a conscious decision to not use my phone at every instant. I practically forced myself to sit alone and enjoy my own company. I traveled solo and at times it was awkward to sit there and not be tempted to pick up my mobile device, and after the first couple of times it just came natural and it was quite exquisite. And even though I sent there alone, as I looked at everyone else around me enthralled in their phones, I realized they were more alone amongst themselves than I was.

I’ve done this for a good six months before. It’s really good to step away once and awhile.

My daughter tries to have no screen Saturday’s, or Sunday’s as a standing rule for her daughters 5 & 11 years old. It’s easier than we thought finding things to fill that space . Lots of interactive games , hugging trees, watching clouds , painting, building bird houses, etc. Those days are always rewarding. ♥๏ธ

I never take my phone with me..its basically a kindle.. I spend time on social media for research and spiritual work..on my pc..when i go out I enjoy the trees,birds,nature..we can use social media for good..x

Not easy for Deaf people anyway cause we rely on internet as our form of communication and accessing to information. It’s the only platform we have to keep in connect with each other both locally and world wide.

I love it when mine runs out of battery and I leave it charging Mine broke for a whole weekend and it was amazing! Matt Fenton please try empty days!!!!

Reminds me of growing up. Finding your mates took half the day up. Simple but good times ๐Ÿ‘

Personally- I go to work & leave my phone in my bag - on silent.

I do it everyday I work. I work with children for 10 hours and I’m not allowed to have my phone on!

Do you think it's possible to be happy? Or do you suffer from "Cherophobia" the feeling that somethings going to wrong if you're happy! ... See MoreSee Less

This is very insightful. Personally I'm a naturally happy and bubbly person. But I'm aware I am quite unhappy at the moment. I'm also aware it is because I'm feeling that I'm lacking purpose. I enjoy my work, never moan, but feel I have not achieved anything. Also my financial situation is causing frequent stress . I am eternally grateful, but have to make some specific changes. This has struck a positive cord

I totally agree. I need Meaning, Purpose and Gratitude in my life to achieve a state of Happiness. ๐Ÿ’š

This has been 100% true in my life. When I began focusing on how I could be of service to others and living selflessly, things began to change in my life. My head held a bit higher. I had next to nothing at this time and i was the happiest I had ever been.

If you want to be happy, you should make others happy. Happiness is different from pleasure. Pleasure is instant, but happiness is endless.

I have read that when you get stuff - your mood lifts temporarily but then it goes back to your previous level within three months. The things that make you happy are meaningful work, connecting with others, exercise, enough sleep and food ( Maslow’s hierarchy of needs) and randomn acts of kindness. Do all that and you will feel happier - there is a great book which collates all the studies on happiness - “the happy economist” by Ross Gittens. Some of the findings are surprising e.g After the initial baby moon most parents mood drops when they have children - babies do not make you happy but they make your life more meaningful. The research shows that your mood lifts when they leave home!

Russell, that is so true of the worker who dislikes the job while choosing the purposes of loving and serving her coworkers, finding personal growth in her daily experiences, and investing in her own expansion and self-discovery outside of that work.

Happiness in my opinion is to be found through the true understanding of Grace: there is grace when there is a very high level of self love when there is a real and lived and profound connection with God and the Godess and all that is which is so with spirituality and there is grace when you are able to compete not to then want to humiliate the other but wanting to have the other push you to another limit on that same path have you also push the other person to go over new limits also on their side! The components of grace: there is grace when there is giving and caring which then generates receiving love, that flow of energy the giving that goes out and the love that comes back! There is grace when there is happiness and joy, so joy within oneself expressed as happiness and then it comes back to the joy and it increases the joy, there is grace when there is elegance and excellence also this flow of energy is important, doing things with Elegance which means with the less amount of energy to reach the most amount of result, in excellence which is elegance done with harmony and balance, there is also grace when there is the flow of energy between majesty and greatness, there is also grace when there is a touch of mystery, the intriguing and spontaneous and attractive mystery not the scary one that is part of what grace is! The 6th component is Gratitude: Thankfulness and appreciation spontaneous but genuine reaching and grounding gratitude! The last component is the generous and benevolent celebration with caring and compassion!

Yes of course it is. Contentment is more important than happiness though, but what do I know?

Happiness is the by-product of Self-realisation. Self-Realisation comes about by letting go of what we are not. Our essence is love, happiness and presence

I personally have a reason to be unhappy to the point of you know what but I have this inner happiness,maybe you could call it joy, its powerful and it keeps me grounded and yes! I'm happy! It's not even about purpose, although that is wonderful too, it's just simply happy/joy. Seeing the funny side even in the worst situations.x

I think happiness is how you choose to live your life and who you let in it. If you let a lot of negative people in you tend to be less happy than if those people were not in your life. Staying away from drama and negativity. Working in a career that gives you some satisfaction doing it. Doing things for your family and others. I personally am a very giving and caring person and yes it has gotten the best of me but not to the people who deserve it the most. Having great and positive friends help too.

We already are meaning and purpose, my dear Russell. What we are doing is finding our way back to remembering that ๐ŸŒ 

Agree. I have zeven slipped discs, spinal stenosis, spondylolithesis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, IBS, depression and Lyme disease and I can honestly say that I'm happier now, in sobriety, than I have been for years. Yes, there's 24/7 52/52 pain and immobility. Living on benefits, but I am of service, part of a community, have a few good friends and am expressing myself creatively. That makes me happy.

Jonathon Haidt “the happiness hypothosis” examines this concept in more depth about what you think makes you happy is unlikely to make you happy. I was amazed to realise that our happiness levels are mostly genetically set with only a very small percentage down to external forces. We don’t perceive this to be the case hence why we are so bad at predicting what will make us happy. If I only had....... Jordan Peterson said “happiness is a fleeting luxury...the pursuit of meaningfulness is an obligation!”

This dude gets it. I strive for this understanding everyday. (That's my challenge - not forgetting, on a daily basis: service, gratitude, and meditation.) Everything else seems to work itself out. Like, magically.

I’ve found happiness in many different ways , solitude , grandchildren,helping others when I can , giving an honest opinion . Happiness shows up in many forms

Russell, I just love this video. You are so right. After many years of struggling to walk I gave in and I'm now in a wheelchair. I look at the world differently now. I have always practiced gratitude but more so recently and I have always served people in the hair and beauty arena. I am now taking my serving to another level...... I am very aware that hair and beauty is all about how we look on the outside....... I have a new venture being launched as a Transformational Wellbeing Coach, which will be working with people to discover what is going on inside them, exploring ways to deal with stress, how they can feel more energized and motivated, how to eat the right foods for their unique body type. The list goes on. I want to work with people and help them to be happy, healthy and content in a sustainable way, which is an inside job not an outside reflection. At last I am going to use my (very expensive) qualification. I love watching your videos, they are informative and inspirational. Big Hugs โคxx

The moment I feel happy and a little high I have to remind myself of the Tsunami illness that shook my family and say to myself stay humble don't be too happy .. crazy how us humans process our thoughts xxx

perhaps some disabled people are happy, or happier. I however became disabled 9 years ago and I'm definitely less happy than I was before my disability. or maybe with that study is really showing that lottery winners just hate their lies so much

Very strange I was talking last night about how I worry when I feel so happy then worried something will go wrong I love my job I work at a hospital and I love caring for people

Do you listen to Abraham Hicks ever? Abraham says that the purpose is to be happy. The goal is to create a mind where you are generally thinking about good feeling things. Gratitude and appreciation and good feeling thoughts and mediation... and any “purpose” will reveal itself to you.

Everything you said Russell is very true. Since my husband died 4-months ago, I do have to learn how to be happy again. Will be helping others in my church with grief now that I have personally experienced this. You have taught me how important "service to others" is. Thank you

Yes I be happy for you and I like to make people happy I try to help when I can and be there for them being happy with yourself comes first

Gratitude is key. It's not like positive thinking which seems to spin everything to good. There is a radical acceptance of what is our reality and then appreciating the good that creates freedom to have some contentment and warm, even enthusiastic feelings about life and the context/content of what is in it.

That’s why I chose to teach. The ability to be so giving all day long. Somehow the stress can be outweighed by the happiness that comes from helping kids.
